You might want to get some help to pick it up. They are pretty heavy.👍

This is a very good bike and at 5k that's a steal!

Get an aluminum radiator T fitting and remap the EFI, and let the good times roll!!

Yes it was a big difference! What an upgrade worth every penny. Everyone thats ridden my bike has said that its power is amazing and its super easy to ride.

does it rev out as fast as everyone says?

It depends how it ride. If you ride slow, it won't if you ride fast, it will rev out a little faster than any other bike. A cheap and easy fix would change the gearing, or add cams or a pipe. But I'll be honest here, it doesn't rev out as fast as you think, and the low to midrange "bark" is better than alot of the other bikes. I don't have a huge issue with it. I just learn to shortshift and it works awesome.

Agreed...It is faster when you short shift, no reason to be in the high rpms when all the power is down fairly low.
